For pure skiing fun, the Val Passiria Valley offers no fewer than two ski resorts – both with a wide range of slopes, and both with excellent ratings. Plan and Racines-Giovo are popular with beginners and professionals alike, offering guaranteed snow, perfectly groomed slopes and fantastic scenery. Plan is a “soft mobility” mountain village and ski resort in one. Offering 18km of slopes and numerous cosy mountain huts, it appeals mainly to families and those who ski for pleasure. In the Racines-Giovo ski resort just over the Passo Giovo, skiers will find sun-kissed mountainsides, 25km ski slopes and a great fun park for snowboarders. Top athletes such as Ted Ligety and Felix Neureuther regularly train in the Plan ski resort. Here, at 1600m to 2500m above sea level, snow is guaranteed until late in spring.
